What is the “Power Cost Adjustment” on my bill?
The Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) was established in the early 1980’s to allow electric utilities to pass on unusual cost swings in fuel and other variable expenses without the need to continually change rate schedules. The PCA can be negative (cost credits to customers), zero, or positive. For several years, a positive PCA has been necessary due to the large distortion in purchased power costs, which resulted primarily from the California deregulation experiment.
